Easter Fun

It is my turn to choose the theme at Make My Monday and I went for Easter Fun. My craft room is still in a state of chaos but I have got the laptop and printer set up now. So I went for a digital creation.
I used Craft Artist and some of their digikits to make this card.Such a shame that it is no longer available.

This is what my room looked like at the weekend!

Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge

 It's time for the March Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stampers. I cant believe how fast this year is going already!

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

I made this in a bit of a rush to fit round the builders finishing and having new carpets laid. I knew that as soon as that happened I wasn't going to be be able to do any crafting as I would be too busy moving things from room to room to accomodate the carpet fitters! I have used a freebie die from a couple of years ago, for the main image. The snowflakes are a Tim Holtz set.  The white glitter card was out of my scrap box. I stamped the sentiment from HLS Christmas Joy in White then heat embossed it with some WOW embossing powder.

I hope by next month's challenge that I will be back in the house, in my new craft room and things will at long last be back to normal.

A Furry Friend!

It's time for a new challenge at Cardz for Galz. The theme is "Furry Friends"  I have made a fairly simple card. I found the 6x6 paper while i was looking for something suitable to use and rather liked the way it provided a frame.

The stamp is from a Kanban set bought a long time ago from QVC!. I thought the car looked a little haughty which is why I used this particular sentiment, which carries on  inside the card.

Do check out what the rest of the  DT have made.

Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

For this card I used a Little Claire stamp that I got when they used to do monthly kits. I used watercolour pencils to colour it in, then mounted it on black then onto a cream DL card blank.

I hope you'll be able to join in this month.

Jungle Fun!

This week at Cardz for Guyz we have a sketch for you.
I cut out three circles from a panel of white card. Then I stamped the animals on some scraps of white, coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them. Fussy being the right word for the monkey!

I popped the three animals behind the holes and stamped some leaves to break up all the white. The stamp set was a magazine freebie some time ago and had sat uninked in my box of NBUS stash! The sentiment is from Uniko.

As always there is lots of inspirattion for you on the challenge blog.

Messy card for a Teen!

The new challenge at Make My Monday is to use a messy background. Now I always think they look great when other people do them, but I'm never so sure about mine! Anyway I had a rummage through my box to see if I had anything ready made and found the last piece of a Brushos background created at the HLS retreat back in November.Having found it I then had to think of something to do with it! I decided a large sentiment was the way to go and dcided to emboss it with  a metallic green embossing powder. Needless to say it was a disaster - I just couldn't get a decent image. Back to the drawing board.
So I mounted it on to orange then cut a band of the same orange to cover up the disastrous embossing, stamped the sentiment in black, fortunately using the Misti as I had to stamp it three times before getting a clear print. Some enamel dots finished it off and it went on its way to Roy's great-nephew who has just turned thirteen!

Floral Thank you.

The new challenge at Cardz for Galz is "Rubber Stamping" lots of choice there for you.

I have chosen to make a one layer card using a NBUS Uniko stamp set.I coloured the flowers in with watercolour pencils. The card is textured so it has a nice finish to it.

Make sure you check out all the inspiration on the challenge blog.

Something beginning with L

Hi and welcome back to a new challenge at Cardz for Guyz, where this time we want to see something beginning with L. I discarded the obvious like lamb and lion and went for light bulb instead!
I found some nice yellow spotty paper to use as a background - I really need to use up some of the huge amount of papers I have. Then I matted everything on to black. The stamp set is from a Simon Says Stamp monthly kit.

Going round in Circles!

That sounds like me at the moment! I thought I had got most of my DT cards organised for the next few weeks, but I had completely forgotten this one! So it has been made in a bit of a hurry for the challenge at Make My Monday.

I die cut a circle out of the middle of a scrap of white card and backed it with another snippet of yellow. The sentiment was stamped using my trusty Misti, it is a very old SU stamp. The finishing touches were some brightly colored enamel dots.

Happy Little Stampers - Christmas Stockings.

Welcome back to the new Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stampers.

 Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.


I decided to use another NBUS item or two! The patterned stockings are stamped then diecut with the toe,heel and top added on top. The middle stocking I just die cut so I could add my heart.

The background expression is a Creative Expressions folder Twisted Holly. Im afraid I still haven't got back into my house so the photos have been taken on the kitchen worktop which is not the best background.
